Since starting my job I haven't had time to check anything off my ever growing to-do list. I am striving to get something accomplished this week. I have a lot of unfinished projects just screaming at me to get finished. Here are two things that have been on my mind as of late.
My porchI have been trying to get a contractor out to have a look at my porch columns. They are warped and leaning. About a month ago I posted this picture on instagram and enlisted your help in choosing a column for my porch. The verdict was unanimous and it happen to be the one Dr.Jay and I ultimately thought would suit the house best. Of course it was the most expensive option, why is that always the case? :)
I was browsing the internet for some porch inspiration when I stumbled across these. They stopped me right in my tracks and my porch plans went right out the window. The style of these porches are open and inviting. I love the wide stairs! I am itching for the contractor to hurry his buns up and get here. I want to see if my new plans for the porch are doable, not only from a contractor stand point but from a financial one.

Living Room RugI also have rugs on the brain. I recently got tired of our dirty, dingy rug and removed it. We now are sporting only are hardwoods. Its a great look but it is not soft to sit on. :) Dr.Jay rarely agrees with my decorating fits but this time he did! So he has been helping me shop for a new one. Here are a few of the ones we like:
